Xie Hongdong: The Third Compass

@ ENGAGE Projects

864 N Ashland Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

Opening Friday, June 2nd, from 6PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, July 8th

ENGAGE Projects is excited to announce our upcoming solo exhibition The Third Compass by photographer Xie Hongdong. Based in Beijing, Hongdong draws on his upbringing in Gansu Province of northwest China, a diverse landscape of grassland, desert, mountain range, and river, to make his photographs that abstract elements of the natural world. Both obscure and familiar in their physicality, Hongdong’s works touch on the subconscious with their intuitive link between the external environment and internal psyche. The artist adheres to a strict principle of no post-photo manipulation to preserve the translation from life to frame, perfecting this self-taught approach to photography since 2012. Join us for the opening reception on Friday, June 2nd from 6:00-8:00pm.
